Orienteering race 20:17 [5] *** 2.5 km (8:07 / km) +100m 6:46 / km
spiked:12/14c shoes: VJ Falcons

Flying Pig Sprint at French Park. Fun sprint with first half in the woods and second half across open fields. Minor error on first control (~15 sec) and a big error on #5 (~1:45 - got confused by the bridge(s) in the terrain which weren't explicitly shown on the map and got into the wrong ditch). Upper 30's and breezy.

Orienteering race 19:49 [5] *** 2.4 km (8:15 / km) +120m 6:36 / km
spiked:13/13c shoes: VJ Falcons

Flying Pig Sprint at Burnet Woods. Second sprint of the day - a bit more open than the first but with plenty of climb. Clean run. Went more or less straight from 12 to 13 - road route may have been faster.

Orienteering race 37:54 [5] *** 3.7 km (10:15 / km) +180m 8:14 / km
spiked:12/15c shoes: VJ Falcons

Flying Pig Middle Distance at Miami Whiterwater - North. Nice technical course with a series of 4 sprint type controls at the end. About 3 min total of errors - stopped a spur short on the long leg (#3) and was too far downhill on the quite short eighth leg (#7 may have been farther downhill than shown on the map). Apparently others made more errors since I ended up with the fastest time on the Green course. Temps in the low 40's with some breeze.

Right calf (and hamstring to a lesser extent) still sore from the Valley Goat, so I've been resting them - hoping to be OK for the Pig. Had some cramping during the Valley Goat which apparently the muscles did not like.

Orienteering long 2:26:53 [4] *** 14.3 km (10:16 / km) +545m 8:38 / km
shoes: VJ Falcons

Valley Goat III, Long version. Beautiful day, 40's and sunny with a bit of breeze. Nice course, but some brutal climbs and descents on rocky hillsides (occasionally partway down the hill and then back up). Flip-flopped with Karl Ahlswede and Phil Bricker through most of the race, taking different lines but usually helping each other into the controls. On the verge of cramping a few times but managed to control it by walking. Couse started and finished on the Mt. Misery map with a loop on the Mt. Joy map. Forerunner measured 16.1km distance.

Updated the distance after measuring it on the map - a 10% bonus over the advertised 13km. Plus 545m of climb based on my route.
